  1. Mean people suck

    Well, let me just say that I've been whacked upside the head yet again by cruelty and narrow-minded intolerance. Mainly because a few people in my group (and yes, I was among them :salook went out one night to let off some steam. Nobody was hurt, everybody came home safely. Yes, we acted silly and goofy, but we weren't out of line for the atmosphere we were in and it didn't interfere with any educational activity in any way. However, there are one or two judgemental people who weren't even ...

  2. Tha Anesthesia Fairy...

    hangs out in my cases. Do any of you have an anesthesia fairy? My anesthesia fairy pushes the drugs for me, and turns on the ventilator when I (the idiot) forget to do it, and tapes the eyes, because I was too busy turning on the gas to do so, and so on.... what am I going to do when the anesthesia fairy goes away????

    :Flush:

    Oh, well. Everybody has been kind and supportive and reassuring, and I guess I'll just keep plugging away. What else is there to do, after ...

  3. Two Months Till Seniorship and Rotations

    Welp...

    So far so good in this semester and we are about 1/3 done. It is hard to believe that in about 2 months I will be a senior. Once that happens Ill be in a room by myself and we start rotations out for specialties like hearts, neuro, OB and Paeds.

    Well I have not posted in a while but wow, 300 cases down. I guess I am trying to learn the art of finesse of anesthesia. This week I have felt all thumbs ****ing dr Sny kills me, he just sets me up for failure. Like with the trauma pt he takes of the c-collar and holds the pts head I cant get a good view, he the takes over lifts the pts head 6 “ of the table and of course we can see now. I am doing most cases by myself I feel good about handling 90-95% of the problems that come up I have dealt ...

  5. Quick update

    All I can say is Holy Shit!!!! We have 10 hours of Anesthesia Didactics on Tuesday and another 10 on Wednesday for 6 weeks. Done with week 5 now. Every one of those days, we get enough material to need a month to learn. But there is NOT a month to learn it. I have no more time to type. Our only relief is that Clinical starts in a week and a half, and after that there will be only 4 hours of Anesthesia Didactics/week. 2.5 days of clinical off the bat, but at least not tons and tons of information. ...
